Estrid, the Masked and Curse of Predation sadly aren't legal in the modern format. (You can always just call it a casual deck, but if you want to play modern specifically, they have to go.)

The good news in losing Estrid however, is that it gives you a good excuse to cut blue entirely.

With only basic lands in your mana-base, playing three colors is hard. I know you have Realmwright to help out, but with only two colors, you wouldn't even need to rely on its mediocre ability. ( Urban Utopia is still at least playable with 2 or 3 colors, but they could be Abundant Growth which is actually decent.)

Archetype of Imagination and Hypnotic Siren are both nice, but very unlikely to be cast in this 18 lands, 4 draws - deck.

That leaves Ordeal of Thassa as your only good blue card, making the cut pretty easy.


On a sidenote, if you want enchantment to be good in modern, you probably shouldn't go for the midrange route, as it invites you opponent to two for one you, making you lose the value you are trying to gain.

I'd either go for Hexproof, with Gladecover Scout n' such. Or I'd go for a prison-style with Ghostly Prison and alike.

But hey, good and decent are two different things, and depending on your playgroup, you may not be in need of an actually good deck to compete.

Just know that if you want to make improvements, I'd be happy to help :)

I might recommend that you go with either Gladecover Scout or Slippery Bogle rather than Kor duelist and Noble Hierarch as they’ll be much more difficult to remove. Then you could potentially go “Turn one, creature. Turn two, Sigarda’s Aid+Hammer” and just start swinging.

jconeil1988 Sorry, I meant to say "if I were going the route of a bogles deck I would certainly want 4x Slippery Bogle , 4x Gladecover Scout , and 4x Kor Spiritdancer ."

Not x2 Bogles. My mistake.

jconeil1988 Thank you for the feedback! As for your creature base suggestion, I think you're totally right, if I were going the route of a bogles deck I would certainly want 2x Slippery Bogle , 4x Gladecover Scout , and 4x Kor Spiritdancer . However, my idea with this deck was to make a deck inspired by bogles, but also keep the -1 colorless mana for enchantment spells synergy given by Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Herald of the Pantheon and possibly x1 to x2 Satyr Enchanter . I know bogles is far more competitively effective and certainly far more streamlined, but I felt the -1 colorless mana would be fun and allow me to play higher cost enchantments.

But I also feel like this initial version of my deck doesn't capitalize on that -1 colorless mana synergy enough to make it an effective part of the deck. I was certainly thinking about taking out all the creatures except possibly x4 Slippery Bogle , 4x Gladecover Scout , and 2x Kor Spiritdancer x1 Danitha Capashen, Paragon and x4 Herald of the Pantheon . This would leave a little bit of room to add x1 or x2 Shalai, Voice of Plenty ! I have to say that is a great recommendation!

I don't think my deck is quite the right place for a Dryad Arbor, though. From my understanding that creature land is played in bogles 1. because bogles runs fetch lands, and 2. because bogles suffers from taget player sacrifices a creature effects. My deck doesn't run any fetch lands, nor does it suffer anywhere near as bad from sacrifice effects, especially if I can get Sigil of the Empty Throne into play. That's also why I have a second Sigil of the Empty Throne in the sideboard, to switch out for Sphere of Safety if im having to sacrifice too often.

I also forgot to put the one Path to Exile in my aquireboard. Its the only card in the decklist I do not yet own. However, I actually really love my Seal Away for what its worth. It's perfect for the -1 colorless mana synergy, sometimes costing the same as Path but is instant speed with only the drawback of being applicable to tapped creatures, which isn't very concerning in my opinion.

As for the land, I was thinking about running 23, but I think that might be the lowest I'd go without significantly upgrading my mana base, especially since I want to upgrade this deck to better synergize with the -1 colorless mana abilities by adding more high-cost enchantments.

Some possibilities I've been thinking about were x1 Snake Umbra instead of, or perhaps in addition to x1 Keen Sense especially if I'm going to be taking out the draw from Satyr Enchanter , or also Bear Umbra although it is a bit pricy, so I would likely only consider getting one. Whatever the case, I certainly appreciate your feedback! Thank you!

Okay, so. what you really want to do is go the Bogles route. It is exactly this, and you have some of the core already.

First, you want to streamline the deck. You have way too many 1 and 2 ofs.

A decent core for your deck would be 4x Slippery Bogle , 4x Gladecover Scout , and 4x Kor Spiritdancer . Literally, that's all you need for your creature suite, if you can get a hold of one for cheap, you could get an Dryad Arbor so you can get around the Sac a creature removals.

After you have your creatures, you want to build around that with cheap aura spells. Which, you are already on to. you want to up that Daybreak Coronet to four if you can, but three is fine. It is probably the second best Aura you got there. Surprisingly the best Aura you have, you only have 2 of is Ethereal Armor . Absolutely no reason that should be less than 4. Don't sleep on those Totem Armors, you probably want at least 6, 7 is probably better.

Why is your Path to Exile not in the main? Get that in there and grab at least one more!

With such a low CC curve, you can probably get away with running 19-21 lands and still be fine.

Something I've been considering as a budget alternative to Leyline of Sanctity is actually a couple of Shalai, Voice of Plenty . True, you won't be start the game with it on the field, but it offers the same protection for the same cc and gives you an unboltable body that can buff up your other creatures.
